In place of my usual Articles of Interest, this post will lead you to two of my favorite living (non baseball) heroes: Aung San Suu Kyi and Bill Moyers.
The first is a video of Aung San Suu Kyi delivering her recent acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize, more than 20 years after she won the award in 1991. It is her Nobel Lecture and a chance to see and listen to her at length (almost 30 minutes).
The second video is of Bill Moyers delivering a recent opinion piece on his new show Bill Moyers & Co. Many of Moyers’ programs over the past few years have been about the toxic role of money in politics and what it is doing to our democratic process. The actual title of this Commentary is “How to Buy an Election” and last about five minutes.
